I sometimes cannot use a soundgrid I/O device in Q-rec when it is already used by another computer. Here are the steps I did:
computer A (mixer), Soundgrid Studio, using STG2412, set for IO sharing, all fine
computer B (recording), opening Q-rec, it sees the STG2412, but only in italics and grey
I don’t seem to be able to use the shared STG2412 in computer B, no matter what I click or try. It stays grey and in italics. The sample rate field shows a red N/A. When I click the ID field the STG flashes.
The moment when I close Soundgrid Studio in computer A the STG2412 becomes available to computer B and I can record w/o issues.
I can now - when the STG is used in computer B and the sharing icon was clicked - open Soundgrid Studio on computer A and run the previous session w/o issues. The STG shows IO sharing as expected.
When I use Superrack SG or LV1 instead of Soundgrid Studio it is the same. When I switch computers too. I haven’t tried with another IO device yet.
My point is: I normally setup my show, do soundcheck and when everything is fine and I have some minutes left I would like to start a live recording. This does not work. I have to close the mixer, re-open it and re-assign the managment of the IO device.
Anyone an idea what I might be missing ?
I now tried Q-rec + tracks on both computers, same behaviour: the second machine sees the IO device but cannot use it. A redundant recording doesn’t seem to be possible.
